In this video I present Baked Okra Recipe. I show how to cook fresh okra in oven (also called lady or ladies fingers sometimes). This is easy and healthy recipe with minimum time needed to prepare and effort to make. It goes also by the name of okro and ochro and it is a green plant that has many edible seeds inside its fruits. Seeds are edible and they’re high in unsaturated fat. You may prepare lady fingers in many different ways. It can be eaten raw, cooked, roasted or baked. In this video recipe I focus on very easy method of okra baking.
1.25 lbs / 500 g fresh raw okra
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 tbsp cooking oil
juice of 1/2 lemon
Step by step cooking instruction:
1) Before you start make sure that you have washed okra under running water and drained it well.
2) Cut off both ends of okra’s fruits.
3) Cut okra in small 1/4 to 1/2 inch pieces.
4) Place okra on baking dish. Add salt, black pepper, cooking oil. Mix everything well. Separate okra pieces from each other to help it bake evenly.
5) Bake at 375 F / 190 C for 30-40 minutes or until golden (it is crunchy when golden).
6) Transfer okra to a serving plate and squeeze fresh juice of 1/2 lemon. Done!
Small cooking advice: While cutting okra you may notice its sticky juice. Don’t worry about this. Just remember to wash cutting board right away after slicing okra. If this sticky liquid dries it would be hard to clean.
This okra is a great idea for an easy side dish. It is very nutritious and low in calories. It goes great eaten by itself or served with mashed potatoes or mashed cauliflower. Adding lemon juice gives extra tart taste to this appetizer. It can be eaten without lemon juice if you don’t like that taste. It can be served hot or cold. Both ways taste delicious. Have fun and Bon Appetit!
